Hawaiian Airlines announced Tuesday it is doubling nonstop flights to 14 per week year-round between the Bay Area and Maui.
Effective Oct. 3, Hawaiian will fly daily to Maui from both Oakland and San Jose.
Except for a six-week season summer increase in service, Hawaiian has been offering four flights per week between Oakland and Maui, and three flights per week between San Jose and Maui since January 2012.
By expanding to daily service on both routes, Hawaiian is adding nearly 90,000 new air seats annually to Maui.
The increase in service to Maui is the result of Hawaiian realignment of Bay Area flight schedules to better match capacity with consumer demand.
Peter Ingram, Hawaiian's executive vice president and chief commercial officer said, "We've seen tremendous demand for service to Maui from our customers in Oakland and San Jose, so we're adjusting our schedules to better match their needs."
Concurrent with the increase in service to Maui, Hawaiian's daily service to Honolulu from Oakland will go to four days per week, and service to Honolulu from San Jose will go to three days per week.
Hawaiian will continue to offer daily service between San Francisco and Honolulu.
As part of Tuesday's announcement, Hawaiian is offering a special fare sale for travel between both Oakland and San Jose and all the airports Hawaiian serves in Hawaii. The following round-trip prices start at:
- $381 - Kahului
- $351 - Lihue, Hilo, Kona (Connections must go through Kahului)
- $361 - Honolulu
